I... nnnhg. Mhf. Uh.

I can't even say this game was BAD. This game wasn't bad at all.

It was however extremely French.

You're some variety of plant eyeball with a gliding option. One day a giant nose person comes to your pastoral tree planet and starts dropping killer red gears around. Technology is bad, so you set out on a quest to collect between 200-400 floating dandelion seeds per level as you platform around to stop the nose person's plans.

Along the way you meet the plant eyeball who can puff up and stick to things and the plant eyeball who can roll up into a sphere and bounce. This is where I stopped because I just...

It's not like it's bad! It's well made, non-crashy, the physics are okay... I just don't CARE. Maybe I tried to play this at the wrong time. With Ori and the Blind Forest fresh in my memory a lot of platformers are going to come up REALLY SUPER SHORT and feel lacking.

Although if I have to compare it to something, it's more Rayman, and Rayman wins that comparison too because Rayman doesn't feel like it's physically beating you with a sense of aggressive forced whimsy. Like geez at least make your cutscenes skippable guys. I got that the nose dude is evil. I don't need to see him nose-trumpeting at his minions every few minutes.

Sooo yeah I dunno I just legit felt nothin' on this one.
